Whether or not you want him gone, it's time to explore the upside of no Hasselbeck in 2011.

Over the course of the offseason everyone has been asking the same questions: Should the Seattle Seahawks re-sign Matt Hasselbeck, and should he re-sign with them, under what terms? Obviously, the biggest question is will it happen?

Even Seahawks GM John Schneider admitted during the pre-draft presser that it’s a fun topic to talk about, but the majority of the team's thoughts about quarterbacks and 2011 free agency have remained private.

A variety of rumors have been tossed around, with a growing sentiment Hasselbeck will indeed leave Seattle—the most popularly speculated destination of late being Tennessee. I believe Hasselbeck still has value to the Seahawks, but only under certain terms.

We know the Seahawks have a variety of plans in place for post-lockout business. The organization has divulged some thoughts about its vision for the quarterback position through roundabout answers.

With a new collective bargaining agreement hopefully closer "than many people realize," a growing media sentiment that Hasselbeck may actually be leaving and the continued discussion surrounding the position, let's explore the case that pleads Seattle should move on from Hasselbeck next season.
